Description

Daewoo Shipbuilding and Heavy Machinery rescued its plant from the labor riots of 1987 to make it the fastest improving shipyard in the world by 1994. With its competition in Korea making huge investments in additional capacity in anticipation of the end of the recession, Daewoo instead has to decide if its strategy of continuous investment can provide the needed capacity.
